When designing a process in 1898 to purify the air in hospital rooms, pharmacy technician Maurice Berger was far from imagining the fate that his invention would meet! An innovative concept was born: that of purified air inseparable from an object, the Berger lamp and its famous ceramic burner which, through a patented catalytic diffusion system, destroys unwanted odors and perfumes the atmosphere. From the 1930s, emancipating itself from its primary function as a useful object, the small lamp became a decorative, even collectible, object, driven by the interest of creators and artists of the moment.
